APF Senior Nationals Qualification
There have been a lot of questions going around on the internet tubes about the qualification requirements for APF Senior Nationals. To make sure everyone is clear on the point, these are the requirements:
- Seniors does not mean Masters, it means the highest level national competition. APF Senior Nationals serves as the best of the best meet across all age divisions, thus there is only the open class. Regardless of age, everyone competes open.
- Events: full power, bench only, deadlift only
- In order to be eligible to compete in the equipped full power division you must have earned a qualifying total at any APF sanctioned meet within one year of this meet (any meet after 6 Jun 2013) .
- Qualifying totals apply ONLY to equipped, full power, lifters. There are no qualifying totals or requirements for raw or bench/deadlift only lifters.
- World, national, and state records may be set at this meet
- Although everyone competes as open, you may set age division records (master, teen, ect.)
- Your qualifying total need not be obtained competing as open, however; just as long as you get the number in any age division.
- Qualifying totals can be found here: Qualifying Totals
- Top three qualify for WPC Worlds in the open class. This does not qualify you for the age division classes at WPC Worlds, only open (master, teen, ect.). APF Master, Submaster, Jr. & Teen Nationals (May 31st in Waxahachie, TX) qualifies you for the age divisions. Also, this does not qualify you for AWPC Worlds. The AAPF Nationals (April in Baton Rouge, LA) does that.
- Any questions please email the state chairs, Joe Smolinski and Ezra Salmon.
